Sixty-two years ago, a large dance hall and tavern called Esquire Ballroom opened on Hempstead Highway, on the outskirts of Houston and through the years it hosted legendary country acts like Patsy Cline, Willie Nelson and George Jones. Four years ago, the old Esquire location became a country and western LGBT club known as Neon Boots Dancehall & Saloon. Neon’s owners refer to their establishment as an “Everybody Bar” since all are indeed welcome and no discrimination is tolerated. The crowd at Neon is fun, unpretentious and diverse in every way, and the patrons all come together (literally) on the dance floor. There are lessons every Thursday evening for those unschooled in the art of two-stepping and line dancing. Bingo, karaoke, live music, Texans viewing parties, Latino nights, Queer Queens of Comedy Shows and other fun events on Neon’s calendar keep this Spring Branch-area joint jumpin’.
